ISA Automation Week 2011 will feature an Energy Track within the technical conference, focusing on topics like Smart Grid, alternative energies, plant retrofits, and power management. A knowledge-driven technology and solutions event designed to deliver a stimulating and highly relevant educational experience to automation and control professionals who work within continuous process, discrete, and hybrid manufacturing environments, ISA Automation Week will be held 17-20 October 2011 at the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center in Mobile, Alabama. Information about the conference is available at the event website, www.isaautomationweek.org.
Schneider Electric will host a booth on the exhibit floor, and will present a paper on industrial energy efficiency. Schneider Electric’s solution set for the industrial environment focuses on power management systems, high density metering, energy tariff optimization, power quality mitigation, intelligent power and motor control, and renewable energy conversion.
“Enterprises with multiple sites and complex energy data often report energy as one of their most significant capital expenditures,” said Robb Dussault, offer manager at Schneider Electric. “Managing how that energy is purchased and used is of strategic importance to businesses around the world, and Schneider Electric offers engineers and plant managers in water, oil and gas, mining and metals, and other industries real solutions to their energy management challenges.”
